Photographer of the Week – Jennifer O’Neil
By Joanna Lentini, June 22, 2017 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

Tarpon hunting in Bonaire

Photographer of the Week, Jennifer O’Neil, began her journey into the world of ocean photography in the early 90s with a Nikonos V film camera in her hands. While Jennifer was raised in Alabama, she spent her childhood summers exploring the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. At the young age of seven, her father changed her life forever when he took her scuba diving. On that very first dive, she encountered a stingray, and has been under the ocean’s spell ever since.

These days, Jennifer spends a good majority of the year submerged in the waters surrounding her adopted home of Bonaire. After reluctantly switching to digital, she now shoots with the high-end Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. Interestingly, it wasn’t until Jennifer was finishing her degree in architecture that she discovered how much she truly enjoyed photography.

Over the years, Jennifer has traveled the world—from Papua New Guinea to the Seychelles to Indonesia—and has told me of some truly epic underwater experiences. I love how well Jennifer’s images capture the drama of each fleeting moment—whether it’s a baitball or a porcelain crab. It’s no surprise her images have been widely published around the world. We’re sure her images will encourage young people everywhere to take a camera with them on their own ocean adventures.
